The Plexis POS system is designed to do payouts separately. You can not mix
lottery payouts and sales within the same order by using our built in Lottery
functions. Many of our customers want to tightly control payouts which is the
reason for our built in functionality and control.
If you are less concerned and would like to get around our standard
functionality follow these instructions:
1. Create an inventory item, call it lottery $x.xx payout.
2. Assign to dept PDL then add a button if desired.
3. Set the Selling price to a Negative Amount (for example: -2.00).
4. Create as many buttons as you like with negative payout amounts.
During a sale requiring a payout simply choose the button with
the desired payout amount.
If you wish to enter a free hand payout set the Selling price to
0.00 when creating an inventory lottery payout item.
Now, when paying out you will be prompted to enter a price, enter -2.00,
then continue adding items.
You must use the (-) key prior to entering an amount in this case.
There are NO restrictions on the amount that can be entered here, so
be careful of mistakes in this case.
Sales of any item can now be mixed with Lottery Payouts.
Leaving the description blank when creating an inventory item will prompt
you to enter a description at the Sales Screen when choosing this button.
